Seeing Machines signs global framework agreement with Shell

LONDON, UK: Seeing Machines Limited, the advanced computer vision technology company that designs AI-powered operator monitoring systems to improve transport safety, has signed a Global Framework Agreement with Shell Global Solutions International B.V. (Shell) for the provision of its Driver Distraction and Fatigue Technology (DDFT), Guardian, to enhance safety across its worldwide operations.

Shell, a global group of energy and petrochemical companies with more than 80,000 employees in over 60 countries, is very focused on road safety and its employees and contractors drive a combined distance of around 500 million kilometres every year. There is a clear focus on safety across the Shell group of companies and they are regular participants in research projects to better understand driver behaviour and fatigue.

Shell is planning to deploy Guardian in areas where fatigue and distracted driving are considered to be a safety risk. Given the size of Shell’s global footprint the deployment of Guardian is expected to begin in 2021 but could take several years to fully implement. Alongside a range of other DDFT solutions, Guardian has been assessed by Shell to be an effective solution for managing DDFT risks as part of an overall fatigue risk management plan.

Max Verberne, GM of Aftermarket at Seeing Machines commented: “We are delighted to be working with Shell, who are genuinely focused on safety, to deliver Guardian as they work towards improved protection of their employees and the communities through which they drive.
